Good Sunday Morning!! I'm hoping everyone is at least. I'm just glad that my Saturday is over. My little brother is getting married Friday evening and I had to go and find a dress to wear. I don't mind shopping for others or with others but not for myself. All it does is depress me and I end up crying. I'm not lucky like some of those women that put on a great dress and walk out looking perfect. I am what America calls the average size woman that industries don't make pretty or cute clothes for. If you do find something that you like, it never looks the same on as it did off. So after a day of shopping, I ended up with a nice shirt and dress pants. The usual for me because nothing else works. I would like to wear a dress just one time.

Oak Pond Creations is our sponsor of this week's challenge. This is an etsy store that has very cute images. They have sponsored some of our challenges before and we are grateful that they are sponsoring us again this week. I choose the digital image "Halloween Friends." There is a owl, cat, and bat. I added some ghosts to be friends right along with them. This card is a new fold that I have never tried before. But, before I tell you about the card, I want to let you know about the prize for this week.

With the card that I made, I used a Double Gated Fold. I wanted to try something different and I think I did pretty good. The only thing that I think is wrong is the very first fold. I think it's suppose to turn the opposite way but I didn't figure is out until the whole thing was done. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The only thing I would want to change is the size of the card. I would have wanted to make it a little bigger. So here is the card with "Halloween Friends."

I hope you like it. You may be able to see that first fold and judge for yourself if it's turned the right or wrong way. I have had that little sign that says boo since I started scrapbooking. I just found it in the move. I have more with different sayings that are going to become useful in the future. I tried to get the picture to show up brighter but I think the orange I used was just to bright. I used a little bit of the patterned paper behind the image and on the outside of the card. Here is where everything came from

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio & My Stash
Paper -- DCWV
Boo Sign -- EK Success
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
1 1/4" Circle -- Close To My Heart
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I don't know if you will find any of the boo signs but you can use anything in that spot. If you have a time making a card, I would suggest trying to make one of these. I found the directions on the Internet. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is where you will see it all. The challenge for this week, the place where you add your project, tutorials, and we also have a newsletter for you to sign up for. Lots of information and the design teams cards are there also. So, have a look and I will see you next week.
